    Newbe Pro 1200 Questions

    I am new to PWC's but picked up a Pro 1200 over the winter. It started and ran but had been sitting so I rebuilt all 3 carbs. The weather is finally good enough and I took it out. It ran ok but would only turn 6700 rpm(the book says max is 7200). Does this indicate a problem? Also how smooth do these idle? Just trying to get a feel for it but it seems to shake quite a bit at idle. Any help is appreciated.

    The rpm's are real good at 6700 the 7200 is the limiter if i remember right and the 1200's all shake alittle at low RPM"s because of the crank design

    6700RPM at full power is perfect

    The 1200 crankshaft does shake the engine around 2200RPM, give or take.

    Thanks for the input. I really like the ski. It is pretty quick for stock and seems much easier to work on than my neighbors yamaha.

    Turn the volume up on the clip and you can feel a glass table vibrate when the engine does! .. lol too funny..
